05:03 PM ET 01.04 | The NFL will be reviewing the tuck rule this offseason, according to Dean Blandino, the league director of officiating. Blandino and the NFL announced on Friday via video that the league would be looking to revamp the rule, which came into prominence when a Tom Brady fumble was overturned to an incomplete pass in a 2002 playoff game against the Oakland Raiders. The Patriots would go on to win the first of its three Super Bowls. The rule was once again called into question in the final week of the NFL regular season in a game between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts. Quarterback Andew Luck of the Colts appeared to have fumbled the ball when sacked, and was ruled a fumble on the field. The referee overturned the call based on the tuck rule, however, giving the ball back to the Colts.

Dumb rule anyway..I'm with John Madden on this: "I remember the days when a fumble was a fumble. Nowadays they look for all these reasons why its NOT a fumble"

Is it because of what happened to Sanchez and his lineman?

Actually I thought it was a fumble, it was the second time he drew back. But I was glad as I have Indy as the 'dark horse' to win it all.
